The rich emotional quality of Russian songs has long appealed to singers and audiences of many cultures. Songs such as "Dubinushka," "The Story of the Coachman," "Song of the Volga Boatmen," "Moscow Nights" and "Wait for Your Soldier" spring from a long and colorful song tradition, one that draws on Russia's ancient pagan mythology, strong Christian tradition and the bizarre characters of her epic literature as well as her turbulent history and the f olkways of both city and country.

This superb collection of forty-four Russian songs representa all of these influences along with the unique contributions of such composers as Shostakovich, Knipper and Zakharov. Among them are twenty-five traditional folk songs and nineteen popular songs written in the folk style by 20th-century composers.

Reprinted from authoritative Soviet editions, each of the songs appears with a vocal line, full piano accompaniment and guitar chords. The lyrics are presented in three forms: in the original Cyrillic, in transliteration (which will help singers approximate the sounds of the Russian words) and in an English singing translation. The introduction by ethnomusicologist Henrietta Yurchenko probes the fascinating origina and traditions of the Russian song in festivals, weddings and funerals; in the byliny (the long poems of Russia's heroes and great national events); in 19th-century industrial folklore; and in the Revolution and its aftermath.

To encourage further study, the editors have included a discography (revised for the present edition) and a chart of guitar chord fingering patterns. In all, this finely made edition provides an ideal guide to both the musical riches of Russian song and the evolution of this vibrant song tradition.
